Kylie Jenner and Tyga most likely broke up this Thursday—good news for staving off the L.A. drought, horrible news for the wider Hollywood tabloid ecosystem.
The couple that put the “stimulated” in “statutory” reportedly had a “sudden and nasty” split just after Kylie returned from a trip to Australia. The fact that Kylie decided to call it quits on Tyga’s 26th birthday no doubt added to the “nasty” nature of the fallout. According to an exclusive source, Kylie kicked Tyga to the curb after she discovered “something on his computer that made it clear that he had done something wrong.” The chronically vague informant continued, “Tyga is denying he did anything wrong.”
This isn't Tyga’s first bout with denying tangible evidence. The rapper has faced various virtual outings, from texts with his baby momma Blac Chyna to a leaked affair with transsexual porn star Mia Isabella. Never before has one man so insistently and so foolishly failed to change his iPhone passcode. Fans knew that something was up when the entire Kardashian Klan konspicuously failed to post on Tyga’s social media accounts for his birthday. When you can’t even get Rob to throw you a HBD, you know its over.
Tyga’s no good, very bad 26th birthday was rounded out with a not-so-sneak diss from rapper Future and Tyga’s ex Blac Chyna. While Blac Chyna and Future's new relationship is already reportedly on the rocks, the duo put their couples’ squabbles aside to focus on what really matters: ruining Tyga’s 26th birthday. To that end, Future celebrated Tyga’s birth with the release of his new video, Rich $ex, starring the mother of Tyga’s child in some very non-maternal positions. The carefully-planned present is essentially the music video equivalent of a dick in a box, complete with partial nudity, tongue wrestling, and a whole lot of ass shots. In other words, it’s prime material for Tyga’s inevitable, self-pitying breakup playlist.
Here, it should be noted that Future is best friends with Drake—the two recently collaborated on No. 1 album What a Time to Be Alive together—and Drake, who also counts Blac Chyna as an ex Hotline Bling-er, had a very public falling out with former pal Tyga over his tryst with his baby mama. This sent Tyga straight into the arms of Drake’s bottle-throwing rival Chris Brown, and the two have been inseparable ever since, even releasing their own collaborative album together.
Unfortunately, unlike most up-and-coming rappers, Tyga can’t even comfort himself with a Moët bubble bath, or dry his tears with a thick stack of crisp hundred dollar bills.
According to rumors that have been circulating since long before Kylie Jenner was legal—granted, that was less than a year ago—the “Rack City” rapper is totally broke. Back in September, TMZ reported that the rapper was hit with a tax lien from the State of California, to the tune of $19,124.98. This sum, a result of a failure to pay state taxes in 2009, 2010, and 2011, is nothing compared to Tyga’s alleged tax problems with the feds. In 2014, he was issued a lien for owing $100,000 in back taxes; in May of 2015 he was hit by a lawsuit from his landlord for back rent. If that weren’t enough, Tyga is allegedly being sued by his former managers, C&J Management, to the tune of $4 million for services rendered. And last but certainly not least, just yesterday, a judge ordered Tyga to pay one of his backup dancers, Allison Brown, $41,000.
According to TMZ, “Allison Brown had sued Tyga, claiming she was plied with alcohol during a Tyga music video shoot and ‘coerced’ to remove her top. She claims one of the men on set—not Tyga—grabbed one of her breasts during the shoot. She sued Tyga for sexual battery since he was in charge. Allison and Tyga settled for around $50k, but he apparently only paid around half, so a judge just made it official and ordered him to pay the balance—$25k plus more than $16k in lawyer’s fees.”
The rapper’s money troubles are no secret—the expensive Ferrari he gifted Jenner for her 18th birthday was reportedly leased, as he couldn’t afford to actually purchase the flashy whip. Now that Tyga can’t rely on his sugar momma, it’s hard to imagine how he’ll remain financially afloat. One sad birthday for Tyga, one giant leap towards the inevitable Blac Chyna/Kylie Jenner reality TV show that we all so thoroughly deserve.
